Throttle Bump, CBR 1000RR

I've got a problem with the throttle on my CBR. It is smooth from idle to about 2500rpm and then it seems as if there is a bump in rpm up to about 3500 to 4000rpm. It makes it difficult to smoothly accelerate unless you actively monitor the bump and compensate for it. Thus making it a chore to ride in ultra urban areas. Any Advice? Is a lube job in order? For the bike that is.

Thanks in Advance!

I'd guess that it has more to do with the tune than anything else.

Stock exhaust on the bike?

Like Brad said, need more details;
Pipe or not? PCIII? Miles on the bike?

Yes, it has the stock exhaust on and it has a little over 6000 miles on it. The bike is basically stock except for some aftermarket "Bells and Whistles" (fender eliminator, clutch lever, etc.) It almost feels like a rigging problem either in the handle or in the throttle linkage (cable). This is why I was leaning to a potential friction/sticky substance situation inside the throttle mechanisms on the handlebars rather than something to do with the engine or electronics down below. Thanks again for your help.

Swing by and I'll look at the throttle cable and freeplay, no charge.

My bike had throttle sloppiness but it was related to a sloppy chain. Have you examined your chain for any loose spots?
